INTECO to built new VAR plant for BGH Lippendorf

After a short but productive negotiation period, an order for engineering and supply of a 10,5 t Vacuum Arc Remelting Furnace (VAR) was placed by BGH Edelstahl Lippendorf GmbH.

The first INTECO plants for this longterm costumer were delivered in the 90s and as a result of close cooperation as well as excellent and fair teamwork the German special steel manufacturer again chose an INTECO solution. The VAR furnace is designed according to the latest technology and is equipped with a drip short control, a helium cooling system and the possibility to execute partial pressure remelting.

The installation of this project will start in October and the production of the first ingot is also scheduled for 2014.
